Create option to have a static background to improve perfromance and player experience.
We should have the option to have a static background. This would greatly improve performance and reduce the stress on hardware.
It would also be nice to be able to remove the background and pets entirely - this would help greatly with noise and performance when running the Windows client on laptops. Basically a low-utilisation mode which makes the client as resource-friendly as possible.
Definitely agreed! I'd also like the option to switch off specific backgrounds. I really don't like the Amonkhet background and find it very off-putting. I like the turtleback one but others hate it. Etc
Sad that this game burns up a MacBookPro and (specifically the lava background) uses more resources than Blender 2.9 (the most powerful 3d animation program on the planet). Please fix this, I’d even play with a static promo playmat advertising your products (youtubers might too, just sayin)
Also, in addition to Static Backgrounds provided by WotC, I would greatly appreciate the option to provide my own custom monochrome backgrounds - an option I need often due to chronic migraine issues. TIA.
Definitely. Add option in Graphics/Gameplay, please. DONE.
lava background is bugged on mac anyway. gives seizures. please fix and improve
This is especially true for Mobile. Should be able to turn pets off for Mobile too.
I agree it helps more people play the game as it makes it more available to people with lower end machines
It is absurd there are literally no graphic options to tweak the client to improve performance. This game is terribly implemented and consume a ridiculous amount of resources for a card game.
There should be options to disable animations, flashy arts, and disable play mats, all these things are non important for a card game and are the reason the client chugs resources like it does.
Then I might finally be able to play on my laptop as well. Currently its overheating from too much demand during game play, even with an empty board. It would also help to be able to disable pets, just like emotes.
This is a great suggestions, also helps epileptic people.
I'm sick of my computer burning to death trying to run this game pls
all animation removal as an option, please
In favor of static backgrounds + any/all animation removal as an option. Might be the minority but I'd prefer a smooth running game to flashy visuals. MTG is an amazing game in and of itself, no need for much visuals IMO!
Custom Static Backgrounds would be an interesting point. Green Screen background for streamers?
And, pls, option to cut the animation when creature ETBF.
I agree. I would gladly play with a solid color as a background instead of the Zendikar and Amonkhet renders. Also, an option to run the game in lower fps mode and skip some cycles would be very healthy for my computer.
Yes, yes, yes, please yes. I have been saying since the beginning of Arena that we need a nice dark (black or dark gray because otherwise my eyes will burn) completely plain battlefield that players can select as an option for games.
While I like trying out the new backgrounds each time a new set comes to Arena, having a plain black battle field that I can always select for my games is the single change I want the most for Arena!
